I love when I get to review cookbooks. Especially ones like this one- geared for busy mom's who love their slow cookers! I was so excited to find some new recipes that I can do in my slow cooker because I don't know about you but sometimes I get in such a cooking rut. New recipes are so nice, especially if your family loves them.
I'm a girl that doesn't really love to cook. Actually, I don't even really like it. So easy is the name of the game for me and if I can get yummy along with easy, I'm in.
Where have I been that I haven't ever tried browning my hamburger in my slow cooker? I hate browning hamburger on the stovetop. In this book I learned that I can brown hamburger in my slow cooker. That alone was worthy of a 5 star review from me. If I can just think ahead and remember, I can stick that hamburger in the slow cooker and set the time so it will be all ready for dinner. That is so awesome.
I've tried a few recipes out of this cookbook now and they've been really yummy. I have a few more on this next month's menu that I'm excited to try. Tender beef over noodles is one of them. There are 6 different chili recipes so you are bound to find at least one your family will love.
This is a great cookbook and one I will use often. My thanks to the author and Cedar Fort Publishing for allowing me to review this cookbook for them!
